An English Girl I admire: Josie Dew

Road Maps

It might seem old fashioned but I prefer the old paper maps to guide me,rather than
a Garmin Edge 705!
paper road maps doesn't need to be plugged in a electric outlet to become operational.
You can't say the same about a Garmin!
In this Journey from London to Portugal I used:

Michelin, Great Britain&Ireland (713) scale 1:1000 000
Michelin, Asturias Costa Verde(142) scale 1:150000
Mapa de carreteras de Galicia Escala 1:300000 Evereste Editorial

Plage des Cormorans

Malgorzata helping me to Pitch my tent ( Near Portsmouth )
What a nice Girl! ( She's Polish )
Traveling at night by Bike without the lights on
is more than halfway to a bad experience!
Some Bike lights that really
light up the night.
and a very good light for a as cheap as U.S.D 78.70
magicshine 900 (900 Lumen)

Riding a Bicycle Safely

It's not my intention to reinvent the wheel!
There are many Terabytes of useful information available for those
who decided to use a Bicycle in their everyday lives.
The issue of security should not be forgotten.
Some useful links to prevent you from being hit by a car while riding your Bicycle:

A photo I took last April.

Tui (Spain)

During my pilgrimage to

Santiago de Compostela.

One explanation:

I grew up near Oporto (Portugal)
English is not my native Language.

But is the international language for many people...

That's why I write in English, though it is a bit hard to me.
Last time I went out for a ride, I had several punctures.
Now I'm using Dr Sludge' self sealing inner tubes.
They are great!

I'm always in good company!
